humility, determination and boundless confidence in america's promise that i accept your nomination for president of the united states! >> the former first lady, senator and secretary of state officially accepting the democratic party nomination for president. the first woman to ever do so. >> we are the party of working people. >> reporter: promising a litany of progressive economic policies in a speech that could have been >> bernie, your campaign inspired millions of americans. america is great because america is good. >> slamming his convention speech. >> he spoke for 70 odd minutes. i do mean odd. >> questioning trump's fitness for office. >> a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.
television audience, clinton appealed to voters alienated by the republican nominee. >> will be a president for democrats, republicans, independents, the struggling, the striving, the successful, for those that vote for me and those that don't. >> she took a moment to acknowledge her historic accomplishment. >> tonight we reached a milestone in our nation's march toward ae first time major party has nominated a woman for president. after all, when there are no ceilings, the sky's the limit. >> daughter chelsea introducing her before the two appeared on stage to a roaring crowd and a visibly emotional bill clinton looking on. the final night of the democratic national convention came to an end with fanfare and
katy perry. and attempted interruptions from a small group of bernie sanders supporters. >> let's be stronger together, my fellow americans. >> clinton acknowledging she does have ground to make up to make people trust her. she'll tackle that starting today when the clintons running mate tim kaine and his wife leave on a bus tour of two vital swing states, pennsylvania and ohio. matt and savannah? >> all right, andrea mitchell. thank you so much. let's turn to team sleepless chuck todd and nicole wallace. >> are you doing okay? >> we'll start sleeping in november. >> you're almost at the finish line. hillary clinton had a lot to accomplish in this speech last
his supporters. she had to acknowledge the history that she's been making. how did she do? >> i thought she did great on two of the three things you mentioned. speaking to the room. a speech written to unite the democratic party and i don't think she built on what president obama did the night before, which was open up this election and open up the democrats message to the entire country and squandered accomplished the night before by separating conservatives and republicans away from trump. >> i was surprised at how liberal and progressive the speech is. you really felt as if the shadow bernie sanders hanging over her head as they were writing that speech. you understand they want to be united. if you thought a year ago -- if you went back a year ago and said this would be her speech, you would have said this doesn't sound like hillary clinton. it's amazing how much bernie sanders had. >> the fact she's a democratic
to do with these issues of character and trust. i'm trying to imagine that voter who is genuinely torn and watched this speech. was it progressive on that front? >> the speech wasn't. the night had other highlights. the democratic party had a fantastic week. they strung together four solid nights. there were some speeches for the ages in michelle obama's speech and president obama's speech and the father of a muslim american soldier whoie gave the most stinging rebuke to donald trump's muslim ban than i heard in the entire political cycle. >> if this convention moves numbers the wait i think it will move numbers for her it will be mostly that wednesday night with president obama, joe biden, the entirety of that night. it was the night that a bunch of democrats who are in good standing with the american voters made their case for hillary clinton, so while i don't think her speech last
between president obama and the totality of it will be helpful. >> we'll do best and worst. >> best moment -- i thought president obama's speech was remarkable. >> what was the worst moment in your opinion? >> booing during leon panetta. the man responsible for the operation that captured bin laden was a terrible moment for swing voters. >> you have to say the obamas. it's possible the two best speeches given by the last name of obama, both mrs. obama and the president. i thought behavior of sanders supporters particularly last night. i don't know if -- >> we wondered if you could see it on television. >> it impacted her. it bothered her the whole time. i think that's what hurt the delivery a little bit. they were in the middle of it
they were disruptive enough. >> she powered through it but it was distracting. >> it didn't help her delivery. >> thank you so much. appreciate it. donald trump was busy on twitter overnight hitting back at some of the points hillary clinton made in that speech. nbc's hallie jackson is on the road with the trump campaign in cedar rapids, iowa. good morning, hallie. >> reporter: hi, matt. good morning. donald trump's campaign is now calling hillary clinton's speech a collection of cliches and recycled rhetoric delivered from a fan underscores the fundamental difference in how each campaign is framing this race from clinton optimism, from trump, warnings about what could happen if he doesn't end up in the white house. on offense after hillary clinton's acceptance speech, donald trump tweeting hillary's vision is a borderless world where working people have no power, no jobs and no safety. and this, hillary's refusal to
refugees is move proof she's not ready to lead the country. a compliment only trump could deliver. >> i thought the speech was good and i thought it was well delivered. >> reporter: the gop nominee's strategy is accusing rivals of being out of touch and living in a fantasy world. real world. they're not talking about radical islamic terrorism. >> reporter: trump himself under fire from across the aisle. >> by the way, donald trump, i didn't put my life on the line to defend our democracy so you could invite russia to interfere in it. >> reporter: new fallout for encouraging espionage from russia against hillary clinton and now a new defense. >> i was being sarcastic when i
e-mails. >> sarcasm he says. national security experts not laughing. the comment raising questions about his relationship with putin. >> he said one nice thing about me. >> here's what he said in 2013 to thomas roberts. >> i do have a relationship. i can tell you that he's very interested in what we're doing here today. >> reporter: a trump aide maintaining the two men have never had a personal relationship arguing nothing trump contradicts that. those public comments including these in 2014. >> i spoke indirectly and directly with president putin who could not have been nicer. >> reporter: and these in 2015. >> i got to know him very well because we were both on "60 minutes." >> reporter: and on the topic of national security, trump will start receiving intelligence briefings any day now that both he and hillary clinton have been formally nominated by their
national intelligence james clapper will handle those briefings himself. >> hallie jackson, thank you. >> let's look at the road ahead for hillary clinton. steve kornacki, good morning. you have the same battlegrounds that all candidates are fighting over. do you see that change in that dynamic this time? >> this is what it looked like in 2012. we are in the longest period of stability in american donald trump appealing to different voters and turning off different voters than we're used to and there's a new fault line closing off traditional states for him and opening some up maybe. >> what are hardest states to turn from blue to red? >> he has to flip blue states to get to 270. you think of two right away. look at virginia and look at colorado. remember how much time we spent on these states the last few elections? if you look at the type of voter
college educated and more culturally moderate and rising hispanic population in colorado. these states may close off donald trump even though they were prime battlegrounds four years ago. the flip side is he's appealing to blue collar voters. pennsylvania. state republicans haven't carried since '88. ohio obviously we're familiar with that. also if you're donald trump and this is going to be your path, look at michigan. look at wisconsin. maybe nevada. you don't necessarily see it yet but that's where you'll have to see it. >> no question the democratic ticket is headed to pennsylvania and ohio today. you took the 2012 map and said we'll work from that and see what happens. >> you can see if you took donald trump right here and gave him pennsylvania and you gave him ohio and you gave him michigan and wisconsin, boom, he hit 270.
there states that hillary clinton has a chance to expand, a red state turning blue? >> that's the flip side of this new fault line that trump introduced. a couple states to keep an eye on this fall that we're not used to. georgia. polling out of georgia that shows a dead even race right there. north carolina, obama came close in 2012. hillary clinton has been leading in polls out there. how about arizona. rising large hispanic population there and the ultimate wild card on this map, utah. the mormon population has been very in utah. >> who would have thought that. steve, thank you so much. let us turn to breaking news overnight in san diego. two police officers shot in the line of duty. one of them fatally. nbc's steve patterson is there. steve, what can you tell us? >> reporter: matt, first thing, this still remains a very active scene. police patrol units still on the ground and helicopters in the sky searching for any additional possible suspects as the information as we have it one
survive. this morning one police officer is dead, the other in the hospital following a shooting in downtown san diego. police say the officers were making a routine stop when a gunman opened fire. >> we have two officers down. >> use caution into the area. we do not know where the shots are coming from. >> almost immediately they called for emergency cover. other officers were in the area. they arrived shortly on scene and found suffering from gunshot wounds. >> reporter: authorities not releasing the names of the officers say one was shot multiple times in the torso and died of those injuries. the other is still in the hospital surrounded by family, friends and colleagues fighting for his life. >> extremely difficult. you can imagine early in the morning when a chief knocks on the door of a family member. >> reporter: the shooting
the area. helicopters, s.w.a.t. teams and patrols swarming the neighborhood. one suspect was taken into custody overnight while police continue the search for other possible suspects keeping the community on edge. >> cop cars just rolled up and then i saw roughly 20 cops with shotguns running down this street. >> never experienced anything like this. it's like the military just rolled up the way the police just kind of swarmed the street, which i feel safe knowing that the cops showed up that fast. it feels a little uneasy. >> reporter: moments ago some good news. the police chief tweeting that the secondary officer who was shot is now out of surgery and is expected to survive. again, you see patrol units, the search for any additional suspects continues. matt and savannah? >> steve patterson, thank you. to serious new concerns over
this morning, several cases are being investigated in florida that could be the first from mosquitos carrying the disease here in the u.s. that would be dramatic change. nbc's kerry sanders is in ft. lauderdale for us. kerry, what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this morning in south florida, blood donation centers are shutdown unless they're like this one now set up to begin testing those blood donations for the zika virus. four new cases of zika have shown up in patients here i broward counties. scientists believe the vector transmitting the disease may be mosquitos right here in the united states. growing concern this morning that zika is spreading with the discovery of four now cases in south florida, four counties are halting blood collections. the fda wants the blood supply tested to make sure it's not contaminated. health officials are alarmed
country, meaning virus carrying mosquitos here are infecting people or the virus could have been sexually transmitted by someone who had traveled into a zika zone and then returned back to south florida unknowingly infected. >> if it does turn out to be transmitted by mosquitos in this area now, we need to take action. >> reporter: aggressive mosquito control efforts are under way throughout south florida. the florida department ing urine samples to see how many people are affected. the danger is most critical for pregnant women. according to the cdc, zika is known to cause a range of birth defects. for pregnant women, it's a frightening prospect. brooke is 33 weeks along. >> it's scary. i stayed inside for most of my pregnancy. i turned down vacations.
relatively calm about it. >> reporter: the fda says it's working closely with blood screening companies to make sure they're ready to expand testing as needed. >> we don't know the extent of the infection right now in the community. they want to be overly careful to make sure the blood supply remains safe. >> reporter: while zika may be in the mosquito population in south florida, blood donation centers like this one here work under an umbrella called one blood. they're now set up test in south florida but they say they'll begin testing all of the blood donations across the state of florida, georgia, alabama, and south carolina just out of an abundance of caution. savannah? >> public health officials lookilook ing hard at that situation. thank you. >> mr. roker, you have an hour and 20 minutes to fix that mess outside. >> i'll get on it. in the meantime, flood watches to talk about. 29 million people in the northeast and we'll see airport

western new england. we're in the showers through about mid-day. localized downpour possibility, but not all towns will see tremendous amounts of water. dew points way up there. we're seeing a lot of humanity in place, and as we go through this afternoon, i think by mid-afternoon, partly sunny skies starting to break back out. that's when temperatures will jump back up into the 80s away from the coastline. >> christa: a man from lynn is due in court today after police say he attacked a woman in winthrop with a child inside the car. police say the man asked the woman to get inside the vehicle beat her, breaking bones in her face. and investigators say the suspect's three-year-old daughter was in the become seat the entire time. and police searching for clues after discovering more human remains at a national grid work site in everett. investigators say a worker found him on thursday. this comes after a human skull was discovered there earlier this month. authorities believe those sets of remains belong to the same person.
? >> a cheeseburger sounds so good. maybe a margarita. back at 7:30. it's a rainy friday morning. it will take a lot more to dampen the spirits heads. >> i'm surprised that the parrot heads are using umbrellas. they don't seem the type. >> they are ready to party. we'll step outside in just a bit. >> shakers of salt as well. inside studio 1a here's a look at the headlines. hillary clinton is officially the nominee of a major party. she formally accepted the democratic nomination last night
convention in philadelphia and in her speech, clinton went right after her opponent. >> enough with the bigotry a bi. he's not offering change. >> for his part, trump was quick to fire back in a series of tweets he called clinton unfit for the presidency claiming no corruption and devastation. follows her wherever she goes. with rio olympics just one week away. fireworks lit up the sky last night but the specifics of the ceremony still very much under wraps. you can see next week one week from tonight right here on nbc. >> also this morning, a stunning
murder case of washington, d.c. intern chandra levy. prosecutors dropped the case against the man previously convicted of that crime. here's nbc's gadi schwartz. >> reporter: for years the mystery of who killed chandra levy gripped the nation. the investigation twisting and turning originally focusing on former congressman gary condon who admitted to with chandra levy. and years later, lewis guandique was convicted of the murder. in 2015, his conviction was overturned with a retrial set for this october. now prosecutors have dropped the case against him all together based on "new information that the government received within the past week."
family. >> i am pretty shocked right now. physically, emotionally not doing very well. >> reporter: the case was fraught with problems from the get-go. a botched search, for forensic evidence and investigation side tracked by a scandal that cost a congressman his political career. legal experts say guandique's conviction may have relied jailhouse informant. guandique now returned over to immigration officials until he can be deported. >> the question is, no matter what, we don't have our daughter back. >> reporter: for them justice for their daughter now ripped away. >> you always want justice. even if i get justice, doesn't bring calm back to a family

testimony of that snitch. do you have a sense of what it might be? >> the defense team in this case doggedly pursued that second notion. a jailhouse snitch. in trial he said he never snitched before. that wasn't true. they say the prosecution hasn't met the standard of fairness for this defendant in our legal system. that matters, too. >> we don't know what prosecutors have. it does seem as though we're back at square o 15-year-old murder case. where do you think it goes from here? >> it was tough from 2002 when chandra was found. no dna. no physical evidence. the passage of time never makes it easier to bring a killer to justice. >> lisa green, lisa, thank you very much. >> we'll shift in gears and cameras. al is at the weather wall. >> thank you so much. it's been so hot here in the northeast. for our friends in the plains and the midwest, it's going to stay cool.

the e-mail scandal upended the democratic party exposing officials efforts to get hillary clinton elected during the primary even though they were supposed to remain impartial. beyond the capitol hill damage that includinged resignation of the head of the party, debbie wasserman-schultz, there's another concern, is the u.s. doing enough to protect the country's electoral system in general. >> i believe we are if someone is not paying close attention, you could rig the system. >> reporter: voting systems are controlled state by state and don't fall under the umbrella of the department of homeland security. typically voting machines are not connected to the internet. current and former security officials tell nbc news that any part of the electoral process handled online is potentially vulnerable. that can happen when it's time to count the votes.
